Using the Fire Payments API

To use the Fire Payments API, you’ll first need to set up an API application and retrieve the necessary tokens necessary from the app.

You can also configure webhooks – you can enter the URLs to which we will send data as certain events occur. This is a very useful way to manage lodgements and update your own applications.

To create an API Application, follow these guidelines:

  1. Sign in to your Fire Business Account.
  1. Click on the ‘Settings’ tab.
  2. Click on the ‘API’ section.
  3. Here you will see ‘Webhooks’ and ‘Application Tokens’
  4. In the ‘Application Tokens’ subsection, click the ‘Add New Application’ button.
  5. Name your application and select only the permissions this application will require from the list.
  6. Enter your Access Code and click ‘Create’
  7. You will see the details of the Application Token ‘Client ID’, ‘Client Key’ and ‘Refresh Token’. Use these to create an Access Token.
  8. Once you have created an Access Token, you can use the API in tandem with our API Documentation to retrieve and create.

Please see our API guides and API reference for more information, or reach out to support@fire.com with any questions.
